Rash of thefts from vehicles in Happy Valley-Goose Bay

The RCMP has received seven reports of thefts and attempted thefts of items that were left in parked cars and trucks in Happy Valley-Goose Bay in the past few days.

Labrador RCMP are concerned about a recent rash of thefts in Happy Valley-Goose Bay after receiving seven reports of thefts and attempted thefts of items that were left in parked cars and trucks. 

RCMP Staff Sgt. Don Rogers is asking people to report all thefts and suspicious activity.

"One of the things that we struggle with getting people to do is actually reporting these things to the police. They go and they find that they're missing two dollars and change and they don't think that the police are interested in that," Rogers told CBC. 

Rogers warns residents to hide valuables, keep their properties well-lit at night and to call police about anything they deem to be suspicious.

"I want to hear about all these incidences because we can't develop a plan unless we know what's going on," he said.

Police have said whoever is responsible for the thefts is approaching vehicles that are parked outside of homes and checking for unlocked doors.

The stolen items include money and electronics.
